Rema Biography, Age and Wiki
Divine Ikubor, a prominent singer and composer from Nigeria who was born on May 1, 2000, is one of a select group of musicians that are thought to represent the Afrobeats genre’s future. Rema is the stage name of the musician and founder of the Afrorave subgenre.
His ascent to fame began after he was signed to Jonzing World, a division of Mavin Records, by A&R and talent manager D’Prince. Following the release of his self-titled album, Rema, which features big singles like Dumebi and Iron Man, Rema established himself as a major force in the music industry.
The latter song ended up on former US President Barack Obama’s summer playlist. 2019’s The Headies saw him take home the coveted Next Rated Artist honor.
Rema didn’t start his further education courses right soon after finishing high school. While he waited for luck to shine on him, he improved as a musician and developed his sound during this time.
In 2018, after posting a freestyle video of D’Prince’s song Gucci Gang on Instagram, his prayers were finally granted. D’Prince saw the video when it went popular on the social media platform and was immediately taken by Rema’s talent.
After that, D’Prince—who is both an A&R and a talent manager—got in touch with Rema and started developing the young performer. He signed Rema to Mavin Records’ subsidiary Jonzing World in 2019.
Rema released his first effort, an EP titled Rema, months after joining the Mavin Family. Iron Man, Corn, Why, and Dumebi are the four songs that make up the EP’s four tracks. The EP quickly climbed to the top spot on Apple Music Nigeria after its release. The two most popular singles from the album are Dumebi and Iron Man.
To the delight of Rema’s expanding fan base, the music video for Dumebi was released on May 21. The video has received more than 50 million views on YouTube since its premiere. Ademola Falomo is the director and photographer of the video.
Rema did not wait for the excitement surrounding the success of his debut EP to die down before releasing his follow-up project, also in 2019, named Bad Commando. Songs like Bad Commando, Rewind, Boulevard, American Love, and Spiderman are included in the EP. Rema’s renown soared thanks to this second endeavor, which brought him new admirers both domestically and abroad.
He won the Next Rated Artist award at the 2019 The Headies, besting competitors Fireboy DML and Joeboy. This was a recognition of his talent as a wonderful songwriter and singer.
Rema Record Label
Rema really joined D’Prince on stage for one of the performances. He attracted the attention of the boss of Mavins Records’ Jonzing World, a division, who called him right away to offer him a record signing agreement.
He agreed to the advantageous agreement and executed the required paperwork. Rema released his debut single, “Dumebi,” through Jonzing World/Mavin Records. It was well received both inside and outside the border. The song “Dumebi” garnered a ton of airplay and peaked at the top of various digital charts. While “Dumebi” was succeeding in the charts, Rema released an EP in 2019 titled “Iron Man,” which peaked at number one on the Apple Music Chart Nigeria and topped several other African charts.
